Insert Game [Here] and Global Game Jam have grown exponentially as access points to game development in the summer and winter, but what if you had an itch in your skeleton to make something new this fall? The UNO Criss Library Creative Production Lab and RHO Interactive are serving a second helping of Halloween flavored game jam sweets dedicated to easing new designers into the challenge of game design. As always, we are 100% FREE!

We welcome first time game developers! Designers, artists, musicians, programmers, voice actors, hobbyists, educators, anyone and everyone is welcome to try their hand at making a game. Participants should bring anything needed to make your own video or physical game. If video games aren't your thing or access to hardware is an issue, you're encouraged to test the waters by making a board game!

We’re announcing the theme 1 WEEK EARLY to give you ghouls a chance to settle on a solid idea and carve up the beginning of your work. The first night of the jam, everyone is given an opportunity to pitch their idea or budding project and assemble a team for the weekend.
